Flood Preparation
Reducing Flood Damage
Reducing the severity and occurrence of flooding in Lake Forest Park is not going to happen overnight. In fact, it may take years or decades. In the mean time, you may want to take steps to prepare for a flood.

Steps
Please take this opportunity to prepare for a flood by following these few simple steps:
  • Be prepared to evacuate
  • Direct water from downspouts at least 10 feet away from your home
  • Do not walk or drive in standing water
  • Prepare sandbags
  • Remove leaves and debris from storm drains
  • Store household chemicals and valuables above flood levels

Do not rely on the sandbags provided by the City of Lake Forest Park or other public agencies. Please prepare your own sandbags, for instructions on how to fill your own sandbags visit the US Army Corps of Engineers for construction and configuration of the bags as well.
